Happy Holidays - traditions edition

I have my own finicky holiday tradition. I am pretty sure I started it around 1994 so I guess it's a pretty good one. I listen to this song on Christmas Eve:

I have to admit that it has been difficult getting into the holiday spirit this year. With all the things going on in our lives, school, travel, jobs, etc... I just got my shopping done yesterday and gifts wrapped this morning. Sara still needs to finish her shopping. I am going to get some decorations up today. We have a poinsettia but no tree (yet). This is our first Christmas without our extended families. It's tough but it's nice to just spend some time together, just the two of us. This is a great opportunity to create a new "family" tradition together.

Happy Holidays to all! May you have a great and peaceful time together with family, friends and loved ones.

Musical Table

Here is a link to this really cool Marimba-like-table. The design idea is that you can adjust blocks within the table to change the pitch of the table and it will resonate when objects (such as plates, glasses, etc...) Pretty cool idea, I would be curious to hear it......

All right one more....

Hair Cut Poll

ok, if you notice now to the right of this post is a poll. I need a haircut and I am pretty much ready to go back to the old self-cut buzz cut. It's cheaper (no cost at all) and the maintenance is a breeze. That being said I thought, what could be a better method of deciding something about my physical appearance than to let someone else decide.

So - I leave it to you, me readers (if in face there are any) to let me know. I will take action on your results this Friday. One way or another - I will post a picture of the new do.

for those of you with questions here are two photos with both hair "styles" shown. Thanks and I look forward to your decision.  

 I seem to be having techinical difficulties posting the pictures.........

It's always sunny

This has nothing to do with the actual show but it amuses me none the less. For those of you who have yet to witness the cunning brilliance that is It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia you have to check it out.

Its a bout a group of friends who own a bar in Philly and are just horrible people, horribly funny that is! The writing is great and hints of influence of Seinfeld and Arrested Development (the BEST show you never saw).

They are readying for Season 4 so you have some time to catch up on the shenanigans down at Paddy's Pub. Go to it.

Creativity in tough economic times

Here is a brilliant email conversation. You have to give it to this particular customer service rep. You know she had a good story to tell at the water cooler.
